Oxford University Reverse Engineers Jet Fuel from Carbon Dioxide

Researchers from Oxford University have recently published a new paper in the journal Nature Communications, introducing an experimental technique of turning carbon dioxide into jet fuel, which could become a climate game-changer in the near future.

The experimental technique was deployed in a stainless-steel reactor by adding heat (350 degrees Celsius) to citric acid, hydrogen, and a catalyst made of iron, manganese, and potassium to CO2 which came from a specialised container.

While the liquid fuel output reported in the study was only a few grams, the technique could be adapted to capturing large amounts of the greenhouse gas
